, a new pew research poll shows romney leading by 4 points. this race is tightening. things are moving, gist like mitt romney. suddenly he loves covering people with pre-existing conditions and suddenly mr. romney is ignoring the fact that his tax plan is a give away to the rich. the only problem, that's not the mr. romney who's running for president and this weekend newt gingrich, one of his top surrogates let the cat out of the bag. >> standing on the stage with you in arizona, this is what mitt romney said. number one, i said today we're going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20%, including the top 1%. mr. speaker, you mentioned that your opponent, mitt romney, had a problem with being dishonest and the primary of my question is, was he dishonest when he said that? >> i think it's clear he changed. >> clearly he's changed. another romney surrogate even admitted it. >> that's all you're seeing here. it's very typical. we we strong conservatives understand that. it's campaign strategy. >> it's typical. just campaign strategy. that's all you're seeing here. very typical.
politics average of all polls show mitt romney taking a .7% lead on president obama. the race was this tight a month ago. right after the republican national convention and right before the democratic national convention. we have been here before. the race has followed this pattern for awhile. when mitt romney makes gain, the polls tend to show the candidates tied. but if you listen to right-wingers like ann colter, this race is already over. >> i think it is over. the reason i think it's over, of course, i thought it was over last week and the week before. romney is going to win. the reason he's going to win is this was the most-watched debate since 1980 when ronald reagan ran against carter and there was only one debate that year. >> fox news is pulling out all the stops. check out the electoral p prediction map fox trotted out today. look at the red states. they gave mitt romney solid democratic states like new mexico and pennsylvania. really? polls should be a snapshot of the current state of the race and there's no doubt mitt romney is benefitting from his debate performa
that shows romney up a great bit. now the real news begins, the state by state by state polls. >> four weeks away. can you believe it. >> we have a few to report on this morning. >> the election is coming. the fight for battleground states, less than four weeks until election day in ohio where there are 18 electoral votes up for grabs. a new cnn poll conducted after the debate shows the president leading by four points, 51-47. romney has gained four points there in just over a week. in new hampshire a new wmur granite state poll showses in last nine day he's whittled the 15-point lead down to 6 points. national polls has romney edging ahead of barack obama for the first time this year. the question is, is this what happens naturally, or was this spurred by the debate? >> it doesn't happen naturally. it happens after an earthquake. >> really? >> there was a political earthquake last week, the likes of which i've never seen in american politics, where a shift happened that dramatically in one night. donny, you've seen these things. i had somebody tell me you need seven positive impressions to
to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good job against ryan, and if the president doesn't show up and isn't strong in the second debate, then you're going to have a tossup race. >> well, i would disagree with your approach, first of all. i don't approach it that way. that's going back and relegating all the old arguments. in spirit what i would do, unlike shrumy, i would take the big issue that is separating the candidates, don't get into the little trench warfare about what's your tax plan and where were you on medicare two weeks ago. i would say where did you stand on saving the american auto industry? you had one position, i had another position. where are you on equal pay? republicans are against equal pay by law. these are big differences. don't talk about big bir
it now ahead in it will polls. i believe governor romney is going to win in november. >> also the republican national committee released a new web ad featuring clips from last week's vice presidential debate. >> did they come in and inherent a tough situation, absolutely. but we're going in the wrong direction. last year we're slower than the year before. job growth in september. we're slower than it was in august and august was slower than it was in july. president obama is getting star power with actor morgan freeman narrating the spot. >> every president inherits challenges. few have faced so many. four years later, our enemies have been brought to justice. our heros are coming home. assembly lines are humming again. >> and the latest poll shows along likely voters mitt romney is leading nationally by two points. 49% to 47%. both candidates are holed up this weekend preparing for tuesday's town hall debate. ahead of that, represents from both sides held their own debate of sorts. virginia governor bob mcdonald pitching for mitt romney while jennifer granholm called mr. romn
romney is leading by two points. if you look at the trend line of recent polling, you can see that obama in the blue line really picked up in september following his convention. we all saw that happen but he dropped and romney started gaining in the past several days following the debate. and as you just mentioned, bob, from ohio the president's firewall, a new cnn/opinion research poll shows obama up by four, 51%/47% among likely voters. that poll was taken after the debate -- actually after the debate. before the debate obama had a wider margin. i should point out something i learned today which i think you guys probably already know. a like lib voter as opposed to a registered voter who is a registered voter when asked from one to ten are you likely to vod, nine or ten. second question did you vote in 2010 or 2008, if you say yes to either of those three -- two out of those three, you are considered a likely voter. >> that's right. >> if you just voted in '08 and '10, that's good enough. if you voted in '08 but you say your chances are 9 to 10 -- between 1 and 10, then you're a likely
that we're ahead in the polls, but i believe that momentum is clearly on governor romney's side. >> look at how close this has become at the national level. a new gallup poll of registered voters gives the president a slim two-point edge. but when gallup looked at likely voters, mitt romney has the lead, lead of two points, 49-47 more on all of the stories throughout the next two hours. again as we mentioned, president obama hunkered down for the second straight day. prepping for his rematch with mitt romney. kristen welker is with the president in williamsburg, virginia, what's going on behind closed doors there? >> good afternoon, craig, well obama campaign advisers say the president is his own worst critic. he knows he has to deliver a more energized, passionate performance if he wants to win this second debate after his first debate. which a lot of folks described as lackluster. that's what he's working on here at debate camp. he got started at about 10:00 a.m. this morning, sparring with debate partner, senator john kerry, has a lot of advisers, reading through materials and watchin
%, obama up 47%. obama has a four-point lead up over romney, the cnn poll. the polls tightening across the country in those battleground states. florida, a democratic caller. alan, we will go back to our topic. caller: from the 2003 opinion, justice o'connor, it encapsulates it. the constitution does not prevent consideration of race. i believe they also said in that opinion that race could not be the primary factor, it could be one of many factors. i think that -- i would hope there could be a way where -- there were people that were more qualified. i think that procedure could be discriminatory, but i would hope that we would find a way to say that this procedure, as it is being applied, does violate the constitution, but not strike down all programs designed to include racial equality and be a diverse student body. host: why this system specifically? do you think it goes a step farther? it takes the top 10 from each school, and then for the next round of admissions it includes race at that point as well? caller: i think i agree with what the gentlemen said before about -- what the g
. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's stop there, mika, you tell me what's going on. keep that up for a while. mitt romney getting absolutely pounded, the gender gap, 20 points almost, fatal for any republican candidate, and now it'
after last week's debate, polls show obama trailing mitt romney by one point. oh, yeah. one point, or as it's also known, the thing obama failed to make during last week's debate. huh? speaking of the election, you guys, the vice presidential debate is just three days away. both sides are busy getting ready and republican candidate paul ryan says he expects joe biden to come at him like a cannon ball. biden was like, there's going to be a pool there? i'm more of a belly flop guy, but i can -- >>> and with us now from washington, pulitzer prize winning columnist, msnbc political analyst eugene robinson. i've got to ask you the big question, are you for the nats or for the orioles? >> i've got to be for the nats, although we're a mixed marriage. my wife was born in baltimore. >> oh. >> not an ill word can be said about the baltimore orioles in my house. >> yeah. >> nonetheless, i'm following the nats and cheering the nats. but, you know, the orioles are playing the yankees last night and beat them. you've got to root against the yankees, right? >> of course you do. if you love -- we
romney is seeing a bump in the polls and in some states is eating nearly ahead. by dint will try to turn this around -- -- biden will try to turn this around, and the burden is on ryan to keep romney's bounce here alive for a few more days until the president and mitt romney face off again next week. that is the biggest reason i think that is a big reason why this does matter. this is the first or maybe the only campaign where one side is campaigning against the policies of the other party's president as much as they are against the presidential nominee. paul ryan and his budget proposals are a flash point in this campaign, so it is unique in that sense because by then -- biden will be hammering paul ryan in the gop ticket on his proposal and on long-term fiscal issues. >> you framed it this way -- in 2008 gentlemen joe debated sarah palin, and you are wondering if scranton joe will show up for tonight's debate. >> sources i talked to on both sides of the aisle say this will be an aggressive, forward-a leading joe biden, someone who will really want to frame a negative message against ro
released, and in the poll, 18-29 year old age bracket is 45% 4 mitt romney. the first time a republican has broken the 40 ce% bracket for youth. governor romney has the experience to create jobs. the 18-29 year olds are either coming nearing graduation and wanting jobs or are suffering in the obama economy. i think you will see a turnaround -- turnout in the polls and will favor for mitt romney. host: we have been focusing on key sectors of the electorate. we will get back to your calls in just a moment. what shape your ideology? why are you a democrat and why you support president obama? do you support president obama? guest: mostly what influence the is my family and having empathy for others. i have always believed it is extremely important to be a voice for people that did not have a voice. president obama has shown that and making sure that is true for the world. we do not turn our backs on anyone. we want to make sure everyone is in this together and move forward together as a country. that is why when president obama ran as the candidates in 2008, he made sure it was not a red state,
in the battleground polls who watched the debate that mitt romney 1. -- won. 62% of the democrats who watched the debate thought that mitt romney 1.

[applause] let me tell you why. we live in the grid is country the world has ever known. americans have the freedom to succeed and innovate and to thrive. we also have the freedom to fail. that freedom has served our country well. it

is not a salesman. president obama is a better speaker ben mitt romney. host: ok, richard we will leave it there. there's a poll on the front page of the new york times -- those are likely voters in the battleground states. some other polls for you. this is also from the new york times in the paper this morning and the front page of the wall street journal -- it's virtually a dead heat between the two candidates. 45% for governor romney in 8%.rida and 4 our topics for all of you this morning, how important are the vice presidential debates? in little rock, arkansas, an independent. go ahead. caller: i commend mr. ryan for his personal achievements. i would be asking whether these two gentlemen have signed a pledge of mr. grover norquist. to what extent should an american president pledged his allegiance to an individual? if a president or vice president would sign a pledge to somebody, that's what i would ask? host: in cleveland, ohio, democratic caller annette. caller: i think it will reflect not only the views of those debating but also the views of the president and mr. romney. i would like t
polls just before the debate and they show that it was closing. after romney had a bet of september as you could have which kind of confirms my belief that there is a lid on obama ceiling, that because of the poor economic record there is a limit to how bloated and committed to obama people are and now i would say, still agree with my colleagues that i think obama is the favorite that i think it's more like 55-45 and i think it's very clear, still somewhat difficult but a much clearer path to romney winning the presidency. >> let's talk about the debate for a moment. based on your comments and sources what went wrong or the -- what went wrong for the president and how did romney become the super debater? we hadn't seen romney in the prior few months or so in terms of being assertive and authoritative. what happened in the white house and what happened with romney? >> i like jay leno's line that only the nfl replacement refs thought that romney one. [laughter] and to keep that metaphor going, the president looks to me like the team that was vastly overconfident that didn't fear or re
strategy has been to paint romney as an out of touch rich guy. we have seen tightening in the polls in the last few days in ohio and throughout the country in the wake of mitt romney's very strong debate performance. i think what we are now seeing is the obama campaign strategy, which is to paint mitt romney as you cannot trust him. saw eight years ago when the election came down to ohio and the bush campaign was very successful in painting john kerry, the challenger, as a flip-flopper. guest: so many similarities between 2004 and 2008. whether it's george w. bush or the campaigns in the state are very similar. host: marie is on the phone from cleveland, ohio. caller: i have been in cleveland all my life. i heard your guests talking about hamilton. hamilton yes, hamilton county is a heavily republican state, but there are lot of democrats also in hamilton. i am part of cuyahoga county. i believe president obama will take ohio. i believe a lot of it has to do with the auto industry and the people that supply the parts to that industry along with the fact that no one trusts romney in
romney. they also look at kaiser health tracking poll from last month. looking ahead to the election, tell me how tony homeport misspending on the military will be to your vote for president with the question asked to respond to this poll, 30% extremely important, 37% say very important. 21%, somewhat important, 11%, less important. the "washington post" goes to their position. the massive federal deficit, president obama announced plans in january for the military that will take overall spending while investing more heavily in social operations forces, growing aircraft and cybersecurity. a new military strategy also emphasizes the u.s. security president the asia-pacific region and mitt romney have thought he would maintain defense training at a gross domestic project and that increase active duty, military personnel by 100,000 troops. the former governor has said he would reinvest in a splotchy setback to the navy shipbuilding for other measures. let's listen to more comments made by mitt romney yesterday. this is his take on president obama's policy. >> america as a proud history
